To Feel Safe and Secure with Her Husband
“A woman needs to feel her husband’s covenantal commitment to stay married and to love her and accept her. Then she feels safe to give him the gift of who she is in the marriage relationship. The Shulammite woman, who was the object of Solomon’s passion, said, “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” (Song 6:3). She obviously had a strong sense of contentment and security.
A wife needs to know that romantic intimacy is just between her and her husband, that he will not share any personal details with his friends. She should not feel pressured or fearful, experiencing the love that casts out all fear (1 John 4:18).”
These five words will mean the world to her: I will never leave you.
It means that I will always stay married to you. It means that I will not allow my work to be greater than you. It means that my heart, my body and my mind will only be for you. It means that I will not violate the bond of trust that has built between us. It means that I will admit my wrongs, ask for forgiveness and repent.
Be Strong. Act Like Men.
